    So after the release of the Retina Mabooks i was able to pickup a sweet deal on an early 2011 macbook pro. It's the 2.2Ghz model with an AMD graphics card. Im trying to find the specs to make sure i haven't been duped but i can only see the Intel graphics 3000. How do i check if the AMD graphics card is installed and its model?

    I'm on a danish mac so sorry if the translation isn't correct.

    Click on the Apple logo on the top left of your mac, then: About this mac -> More information -> and then you should be able to see the specs of your mac :) if you want more details you can press the "system report" to get a more detailed view of everything.

    You can find System Profiler:
    • By looking in your /Applications/Utilities folder
    • By pressing Command-spacebar and typing "System Profiler" in the Spotlight search bar
    • By pressing  > About This Mac > More Info > (System Report if on Lion)
